- Past Events
We love helping people learn to get the most from their outdoor kitchens. Because of this we hold many events though out the year, covering everything from smoking and grilling foods to proper equipment maintenance. Heck, once in a while we just cook a bunch of food for our customers and serve them lunch on the house. It always makes us feel good to see their faces light up when they take that first bite. Below you will find information on upcoming events. We hope you can make it to the next one.

IAB 30 BBQ Class

I.A.B. 30 BBQ, a competition team out of Arizona, has traveled the county and competed in over 15 states since entering the BBQ scene in 2009. During that time they have won Grand Championships in Arizona, California, Texas, and Florida.  They have a proven track record competing against many of the top teams in the nation.   In the last 3 years I.A.B. 30 BBQ has won 8 GC’s, 14 RGC’s, 2 Perfect “180” scores, and numerous individual and overall top ten awards. They have ranked in the top 25 teams in the nation under the KCBS standing for chicken, ribs, pork, brisket and “overall”.  As a result of their cooking accomplishments they have qualified to compete at The American Royal Invitational/Open, Jack Daniels World Championships, Sam’s Club National Finals, King Of The Smoker Invitational, and the Colorado Rockies BBQ Invitational.

Join I.A.B. 30 BBQ for their first hands on 2-day competition style class @ BBQ Island’s brand new location in Scottsdale.

During the class you will learn meat selection, meat aging, trimming, injections, marinades, brines, rubs, pit temperatures, fire management, wood/fuel selection, final meat temperatures, sauce selections and KCBS box building.   I.A.B. 30 BBQ will discuss the techniques of cooking on vertical smokers, cabinet style, off set stick burners, and WSM’s. All questions will be answered.  The class will teach techniques to allow the cook to achieve consistent, repeatable results each and every time.

The class will be run just like a competition.  Friday we’ll cover meat trimming, injecting, rubbing and preparation.  Saturday will be box building, pit temps, time schedules, final box building, and presentation. 

Drinks and snacks will be provided on Friday and all meats will be available for sampling on Saturday.
